Adopting a pitbull had never crossed my mind until 3 years ago. When my daughter wanted a dog who could keep up with her on walks she fell in love with Skye at our local shelter. Skye was listed as a husky-mix. A few days after we adopted skye we crossed paths with a little boy who told us that she had been his dog before the shelter. (Our otherwise shy Skye confirmed this with a heart-melting display of affection toward this boy.) The boy also told us that she was half pitbull. After the initial shock I researched the breed and found that Skye's pitbull blood was a positive, not a negative factor. We now have 3 pitbull mixes, including Skye.
I'm glad to see this website promoting fact over fiction about the breed and am looking forward to getting to know you all.
